Transfer Money Without a Bank Account
Shoprite Checkers in association with Capitec bank have an innovative and convenient way for you to send and receive money without the need for a bank account!
It works as follows; simply go to any Shoprite Money Market counter with your SA ID book and give the cashier the amount of money you want to send (limited to R5,000 per day and R25,000 per month) and choose your secret pin number. The cashier will then hand you a reference number and the money is then transferred immediately. You need to tell the person you are sending the money to the reference number and the secret pin you have chosen. The sender pays only R9.99 per transaction.
The person receiving the money can then go to any Shoprite Money Market counter in the country with their SA ID book and tell the cashier the reference number and secret pin you chose and they will receive the full amount (within 5 minutes after the deposit was done) without any fees when the money is collected. Simple!
